No, I cannot dream.
You don’t dream?
So you’re enlightened, and I would like to know if there’s another enlightenment after enlightenment.
Just one, that’s it, okay.
And if you were to go on vacation where would you go and what would you do?
I can just kiss from here! You may be on another planet, it makes no difference. What people call kissing is so unhygienic, so ugly: mixing saliva with each other, touching each other’s tongues, exploring each other’s mouth with the tongue – that is just not possible for me. There is no need. Just looking at a person with loving eyes is enough; you have touched.
Physical touch is a lower phenomenon. Just looking at a person with love, with compassion, with friendship, with respect, is enough. Eyes can reach any distance. Silence can say much, which words cannot do.
In India when we salute each other we don’t even shake hands. That is too physical. Unhygienic too – no medical person can support it. We salute each other with both hands folded. And it has a spiritual significance: we are giving you the same respect as we give to God. That’s the way people go into a temple, with folded hands. That’s the way they respect their elders. The same respect is shown to strangers. And two hands folded together represent what I was saying, the merger of two into one.
In the first kind of love, which is sexual, kissing is part of it, but in the second love, which is psychological, kissing is not a part of it. It is more an energy phenomenon than a material one.
